Verizon Enterprise Solutions on Thursday launched its Software Defined Wireless Local Area Network (SD WLAN), which it says helps business customers gain network and mobile device insights through a user-centric wireless LAN managed solution.

Debuted as part of Verizon’s Virtual Network Services portfolio, SD WLAN delivers visibility into both corporate wireless network operations and Bluetooth-enabled devices connected to the network. Verizon said SD WLAN allows network access and security configurations to be tailored to the individual user.

Verizon is using Mist System’s artificial intelligence and machine learning technology for its SD WLAN offering, enabling it to automatically monitor and manage the wireless LAN.

Analyzed in real time, user and network data is then used to spot network choke points and unauthorized user access attempts. The platform can also scale network resources up or down to meet demand, Verizon said.

“SD WLAN leverages the advanced intelligence and machine learning offered through Mist Systems’ platform to improve network management and operations while controlling costs,” Vickie Lonker, VP of product management and development at Verizon, said in a statement.

For Verizon, the launch represents “the next step in our overall SDN strategy,” Lonker added.

Enterprises leveraging the solution can tailor services based on user need and location, and proactively address issues before they impact users, while controlling costs by using less hardware.

Verizon’s SD WLAN includes virtual beacon technology and next-generation location-based services that could allow integration with IoT devices for location based security and sensor controls, along with targeted proximity messaging for deeper engagement with customer’s employees and guests.

The AI-driven network solution also aims to deliver an improved WiFi and indoor location experience.
